Youtube, Google, Facebook discussed on The Vergecast

The Vergecast


All that said do you want to build a censored search engine, and I don't think congress like did that like we just had a deeper conversation about Google in China than than anyone in congress has had? So they asked the question and they walked away from it. And then someone else waived its industries the other thing they asked about which I think is interesting to talk about in rarely comes up. I think I don't think the average youtuber things have seemed arbitrary being the guy in charge of YouTube. But is right.

And so, but like I like as you scroll you like, oh, there's another. So now, I'm counting the number of posts between ads just like because I know it's going to get down to one and that just mills really Facebook to me. Yeah. And stories in particulars. Just add city. Yeah. Let's take a break marine add to that. And let's talk about some gadgets..
